Are you prepared to be lucky?
In her article Melanie Pinola states this quote, attributed to Roman philosopher Seneca, reminds us that we make our own luck. The difference between lucky and unlucky people, we've seen before, is all in our perspective.
Luck isn't just about being at the right place at the right time, but also about being open to and ready for new opportunities. As Richard Wiseman's ten-year study has shown:
Lucky people generate their own good fortune via four basic principles. They are skilled at creating and noticing chance opportunities, make lucky decisions by listening to their intuition, create self-fulfilling prophesies via positive expectations, and adopt a resilient attitude that transforms bad luck into good.
Are you a lucky or unlucky person? Or, to put it more precisely, are you prepared to be lucky?
